Had an awesome time at Ocean Bay Beach Resort with my family”

Choosing Ocean Bay was primarily due to its accessibility to my daughter's workplace with LandBank Dalaguete. We didn't expected much because some baseless assumption of the place suggested we choose other place to stay, but out of curiosity, we chose Ocean Bay, anyway. We did online booking but called through phone for onset information. The very good attitude/regard of the resort information employee over the phone was so courteous & impressive. I called 2 times (evening &daytime), the 2 incharge were consistently kind and welcoming each time I call. Anyway, after our 3 days and 2 nights stay, I would stay, the resort is under-rated. It's much better than what you read on the reviews. I would say impressive clean rooms & surrounding, warm & competent personnel, large comfortable yard/grounds to roam, interesting beach to explore. Value of charge/cost reasonable. Needs improvement aspects: 1. TV sets in our 3 bedrooms, malfunctioning 2. No room phone to contact front desk

Hi Joselito, Firstly let me thank you for taking your time to leave a good lengthy review of our resort. I really appreciate that and so will the staff. Most people who leave lengthy reviews are just complaining about one aspect during their stay, so it is very nice of you to actually leave a positive review. Though we do not mind the negative reviews, it is nice to get an honest impartial review like yours too. I will inform the reception staff of your kind comments of them and hope that you will come by and visit us again when you decide to visit your daughter again at Landbank here in Dalaguete. Thank you Joselito, Ocean Bay Beach Resort, Matt.

A Little Piece of Paradise at a Bargain Price”

Beautiful location, friendly staff, Wi Fi in the room, right on the ocean, nice pool.
Two hour bus ride from Cebu City. Hot water pressure minimal.

This is a wonderful resort at a truly bargain price. The staff are superb - extremely friendly and helpful. Drinks by the sea, a beautiful pool, friendly locals who love to welcome foreigners. WiFi in your room, good air conditioning - a little piece of paradise at a bargain price. Folks should be aware that the resort is two hours out of Cebu City. For me that is not a minus, because the city seemed a little rough for my taste. Dalaguete, on the other hand, is a sweet city with all the flavor of the Philippines, but you feel safe walking at night. Also, the hot water pressure leaves something to be desired, but for this price you can't go wrong. I stayed two weeks and I hated to leave. I will definitely return when I am in Cebu.

Good, Relaxing time”

The customer service was great. The staff was friendly and pleasant. The fact that the room came with a mini refrigerator was great. I was able to pick up some items from the local market (including water) and store them for later use. Last best feature was internet access.
The water pressure for the shower was very weak. In addition, the shower head was broken which made it even more frustrating.

The stay there was pleasant. What I didn't realize was the distance of the resort (located in Dalaguete) from the airport in Cebu. It took over 2 hours to get there and cost 2000 pesos. The important point is that there's a bus at the main bus terminal that takes you directly in front of the hotel for about 100 pesos. However, once there I enjoyed myself. The view of the ocean from the restaurant was fantastic. There is also Wi-Fi in the restaurant for those with laptops and there's a computer there for use as well. The staff was great and the place is front gate of the hotel is manned by a security guard. Unfortunately, the lock to the door of your room is shabby and there's no place to store your valuables. The town of Dalaguete was great. The people are friendly and warm and I never felt in any danger even when walking alone. I met a few friends there so I will return and will stay at the Ocean Bay Resort again due to the internet access and the friendly staff.

Great location for a quiet weekend”

Location, Peace and Quiet, Fresh Air

Ocean Bay Resort of the Municipality of Dalaguete, Province of Cebu is located two and a half hours away by car from Cebu City or about 3 hours away by car from Mactan Cebu International Airport. It is a nice resort abutting a sea (Bohol Strait) with a swimming pool and picnic area. The general atmosphere of the resort is nice and clean. Although the kitchen in their studio rooms only contain the sink and a counter top guests can borrow utensils from the front desk people, especially Judy, who is very accommodating and helpful. Besides, when you want them to clean or tidy up your room, just ask them to do so. They will not open your room to clean when you are not around because some guests get upset when housekeeping people open their rooms to tidy it up without prior permission. The toilet area, however, needs a drainage to keep from being flooded because the drainage is only in the bath area. I also suggest that a small window in every toilet and bath be installed to help let some fresh air in because there is no exhaust. Finally, I suggest that Agoda and Ocean Bay work together to properly differentiate Standard Room A from Standard Room B because I gather it from the boy in the front desk that there is always a confusion as regards the “standard” room booked thru the internet. The resort was well lighted at night during the 5 nights we stayed (February 7 to 12). When I sleep at 3 to 4 in the morning, the lights are still on which is a treat for a night owl like me. For those who love to barbeque, there is a barbeque area; and the resort can even heat your leftover food for you, free of charge, if you just ask them nicely.

Beautiful Ocean Resort”

Friendly Staff, Great location, Oceanfront location away from the city.
1st room we were given had no shower curtain. We were upgraded to a ocean front cabin.

My Girlfriend and I enjoyed 6 nights at the Ocean Bay Resort. The staff were all friendly. Boat rides and Snorkeling were awesome. Rooms have air conditioning and TV. The location is 2 hour bus ride from Cebu city ($80 Php) or you can have the resort arrange a driver to pick you up at the Cebu airport for about $1,600.00 Php. The owner is a foreigner and is a valuable resource for any persons thinking of relocating to Philippines.

The studio room that we stayed on is noticeably a bit old, but recently restored and newly painted. Air-conditioning works great. The staff is very accommodating and restaurant breakfast is great and served fast. Pool is clean, but I think they put too much chlorine into it during the time of our stay. Beach however is not so nice, we instead went swimming in another beach (Dalaguete Beach Park) around 10mins away. All in, it is a great place to stay.

Hi Niño, Thank you so very for your in-depth review of our resort, we really appreciate the time you spent writing it. Our studio rooms are one of our oldest rooms in the whole resort, they were the first ones to be built but as you mentioned we do try and keep them in good condition with regular updates and new paint jobs. The beach is being a bit of a problem at the moment, so much being washed up on to the beach with every hightide, so apologies for that. I will also inform the pool guys to double check their test results for the water PH to make sure we are only putting in what needs to go in there and not too much. I am happy though that you found your stay good and hope one day you will come back to visit us again. Thank you, Ocean Bay Beach Resort. Matt.

Quiet getaway in quaint little Guiwanon”

Cheap - Nice backgrounds for Pictures and warm showers

we enjoyed our stay at ocean bay beach resort. the staff we're no trouble at all and always obliging. the resort is not the prettiest place, but if you aim your camera shots right you'll have a very pretty album to show off. the beach had a lot of seaweed trown onto the sand, but they do clean it away...its just that more seaweed is trown back up onto the sand eventually. the pool was nice and our choice for swimming over the actual beach. if u want beach swimming, a short motorbike-and-sidecart ride into alkoy for 15p per person will take u to clear water and fine-white sand. note- the wifi does not reach the cheapest 'standard room a' rooms. all other rooms and public areas have wifi access.

Time to relax”

After five days of traveling with only cold water, it was great to step into a hot shower. The staff was sweet and remembered my likes and dislikes. The swimming pool is a fun way to unwind.
Not being familiar with the area, it was hard to find something to do outside of the hotel. There is not a traditional market to get supplies. Thankfully, the hotel has a good cafe.

My overall stay at the Ocean Bay Beach Resort in Cebu was favorable. I was looking for a place to chill, read a good book, watch the ocean and recoup; and the Resort is perfect for that. However, the beach is smaller than I'm used to (being from California) and the extreme low tide during the morning was a bit overwhelming. It did make finding local sea life easy. I think my favorite thing was getting to know the staff and spending time reading in the gazebo. If you're looking for a quiet get away, then get yourself here.

Location

I like this resort. It is located 2 ½ hours south by car from Cebu City and is along the national highway so finding it is easy. It is near everything that Dalaguete has – the municipal hall, public market, church, school, hospital – and transportation within the town is by pedicab. The resort has a nice swimming pool and is well-lighted at night. It has a restaurant near the entrance and it is open until 10 PM. The rooms have a ref, hot and cold shower, and aircon. If you need anything more, like drinking glasses, you just have to ask the front desk for it. They can lend you grilling or kitchen stuff. The bathrooms are okay, except that an additional drainage at the toilet area is needed to keep it from flooding. There is also a need to differentiate which type of “standard” room is being offered to agoda because it has 2 types of standard rooms – A or B.

Modest but comfortable hotel”

good prices

I wasn't expecting luxury in Dalaguete and so was not disappointed. The grounds of hte hotel are nice and as we arrived there was a wedding going on. The view of the ocean is well worth it. The room was modest but for the modest price it was fine. The restaurant is also very simple but pleasant and the service was good.

proximity to water, food, price, friendliness of staff, water sport facility
non

I was totally delighted to discover this out of the way Ocean paradise. A gazebo restaurant jut out over the water to create a sense of floating. The staff was friendly and their service superb. An on site dive shop provided for snorkling or diving directly from the hotel. The food service was tasty and the service friendly.

nice place..crazy policy”

food. bar and dining area. terrific

Generally really good place to stay. No beach swimming possible water too shallow always. Relaxing peaceful place. Fantastic menu and bruschetta! But an incredible policy of the room price is good for one person only. You have to pay more after arriving if your a married couple.. or a dad with a kid etc. Never ever come across this in 20 years travelling philippines. Astounding policy.. the double beds are perfectly good for two. Be aware.. the price you paid online when reserving... you have to pay extra when u checkout if your with a companion.

Great Small Hotel With Excellent Food ”

Very Self Contained, Private Beach, Good Restaurant

This hotel while far from a luxury resort is quite pleasantly nice and also very self contained. If you are looking to get away for some easy going relaxation you can have the pool, the beach and all your meal without leaving the hotel. If you want to venture out the village is very small and does not have too much to do or see but is very nice and the people are great. I think this hotel is a great option if you want a place to rest relax and have all your meals on site. The staff tries very hard to please and are very nice.

Overall a pleasant experience. Will be back again.”

Well, not all rooms of the same type are the same. Our original room had no view, just a bed, TV and coffee table. But we were able to get a nicer room of the same type with a view and a divider which allowed us to hang our clothes. No hot and cold shower. Food was good at their resto, it's expensive but it has large serving portions and tastes good. Staff was very nice and accommodating. Pool was okay. But location wise, the resort is nice.

Hi Alex, A warm thank you for taking the time to rate and review our resort, we do appreciate the time it took you. Your right, not all the rooms of the same type are the same they vary slightly from one to another like the layout of the room, but they all come with what we advertise on our listings. You did the right thing and spoke to a member of staff who was able to help you at the time, instead of waiting until you left and then complained, so kudos to you on that. I will see why you did not have hot water in your shower, as there should have been so. I will also make a note and pass that on to the manager of the restaurant about your comments. Thank you once again Alex, Best Regards, Matt. Ocean Bay Beach Resort.

Enjoyed 3d2n stay even when the ocean seems not at its best. Pool quite full. Resort's vibe is good.”

Had the wifi worked; had there been (electric kettle) hot water for my baby's feeding bottles in room; and rice meals for breakfast... our stay could have been perfect! =) Still, thank you Ocean Bay! ^^,

Hi Julie, Thank you for taking the time to rate and write a review, we appreciate it. The WIFI/Internet is totally out of our control, I have spoken to Globe telecommunication company every single day to come and fix it, and they keep making up different stories to why there is a problem. There is nothing I can do about the Internet apart from ringing everyday to get them to come to the resort, but as yet they wont do so. It is extremely frustrating to say the least. We have a kettle at reception for hot water, you only needed to ask any staff member and you would have been provided with as much hot water you needed for your babies feeding bottles. There are several rice dishes available for breakfast and I have just spoken to the manager of the restaurant and he confirmed there has never been an instance where there was never any rice available. So I am not sure what happened there. But I thank you for choosing to stay, and I appreciate your feedback, Best Regards, Matt.
